Xiaomi is getting popular in Pakistan for bringing smartphones with innovative designs and flagship-like specifications at an affordable price tags. The company has unveiled another smartphone to its Mi Max series – Mi Max 2 featuring some upgrades to its predecessors.
Like the previous version, Mi Max 2 features a similar full metal unibody build. This time the modest set of antenna lines are set to be skirting the top and bottom of the phone. The display has been improved with smaller bezels but the rest of the stuff has been kept the same.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2, running on Android Nougat, incorporates an underpowered chip – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC as compared to Snapdragon 650 in the vanilla Mi Max. However the new entrant comes in two different storage variants – a 64 GB version and a 128 GB version. The RAM is set at 4 GB for both the variants.
For the primary camera, Xiaomi Mi Max 2 uses a 12 MP Sony IMX386 sensor with Phase Detection Autofocus and a dual LED flash. It features the same camera sensor used in the Xiaomi Mi 6 so you can expect top notch camera performance. The front camera employs a 5 MP shooter.
The battery has been upgraded from the original Mi Max, which already had a huge battery. The Mi Max 2 has a stellar 5,300 mAh battery which can last you through 3 days of usage. Fortunately it supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 which can charge it up to 66% in an hour.
